    Nope. No civilian infrastructure of ANY kind has ever been attacked in a war. Roads, ports, airfields, cities, power/water/internet. These things have never been attacked in a war and never will be

        That never happened. No bombs have ever been dropped on a civilian target in any war. Read a book. All wars happen, um, somewhere other than the places where people live, I guess? Maybe in space

    I'm a retarded person, could you send an EMP device into space and fry all of those satellites? Apologies for poor English

      Not all of them, no. Orbit is really big and most of the satellites are going to be behind the earth or relatively far away from your EMP. You would need a constellation of simultaneous EMP's to take out the entire orbital train

    If Russia causes kessler syndrome, I hope that every single rocket that launches from baikanor is shot down.

    Ultimately international law, like all law, depends on who is strong enough to enforce it.

    If the Russians start shooting ASATs at starlink satellites, we might start hitting Russian satellites, and they know we would be better at this game than them.

    Yeah but imagine being such a pathetic fucking moron country that you risk causing kessler syndrome over a manlet's desire to build a shitty postsoviet empire by annexing some eastern european shithole.

    it probably costs way more to shoot down a starlink satellite than send one into space.

    What are the civilian satellites in question and what are the military purposes they're being used for?

            So is Russia mad that Ukraine gets internet from these satellites? I guess I don't understand what makes a satellited militarized.

        Starlink isn't the issue. In fact, when Kadyerov threatened Elon Musk he got a firm rap on the snout, because the Russians themselves are now using starlink.
        What's the bigger issue is the civilian satellite pictures, which Ukraine intelligence is making heavy use of.

    If you want to open that box, sure. Of course, doing that against your superiors may result in them not just eliminating any of your satellites but getting more directly involved in your failing attempt at 21st century imperial conquest.

    It's all fun and games until Elon Musk accidentally drops a Falcon 9 booster on the Kremlin.

    Don't fuck with civilian space infrastructure, because the players in the civilian space industry have more destructive power at their disposal than most actual militaries.
